§ 82. Mr. Ness Edwards
asked the Postmaster-General what Civil Service classifications and salaries he proposes to apply to the staffs engaged upon the organisation and sale of Premium Bonds.
In the main, the Post Office will employ members of the general service executive and clerical grades in the central office, and members of the Post Office manipulative grades at Crown Post Offices. Pay will be at the rates prevailing for the several grades concerned.
§ 83. Mr. Ness Edwards
asked the Postmaster-General if he will break down in terms of offices, equipment, salaries, advertising, etc., the £1 million provided in the Post Office Supplementary Estimate for Premium Bonds.
The right hon. Member is under a misapprehension. The amount included in the Supplementary Estimate in respect of Premium Savings Bonds is 97W in fact £225,000, and this relates solely to the estimated cost this year of the headquarters staff at Lytham St. Annes.
